PEAS

VEGETABLE SEEDS

Peas like cool weather with best crops being picked in spring, but they can be grown at other times in cool areas. They do not like cold wet soils. Fertilisers rich in phosphates will assist in obtaining good crops. Sow 5 cm deep, 2.5 cm apart, with 60 cm between rows. Best sown May to Nov (cold): Feb to Aug (temp) and April to July (trop). We highly recommend using Powdery Mildew resistant varieties when growing conditions are warm and humid. 5 s/g
